Effects of loperamide and other opioid-related substances on the transcriptional regulation of the rat pro-opiomelanocortin gene in AtT20 cells

Neuroendocrinology

Jul 28, 2001

A NomuraH Saito

Abstract

Although opioid peptides are involved in the regulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, their role in pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) gene expression at the pituitary level is not known. We therefore examined the effects of opioid receptor agonists, including recently discovered...read more

Parasite genetics is the study of the genetic material of parasites. Here is the latest research on parasite genetics.

Opioids & Pain

Opioids work on opioid receptors to relieve pain and other medical symptoms. Here is the latest research on the therapeutic role of opioids and opioid receptors in pain management.

Hypothalamic Melanocortin Neurons

Research within the last two decades has aimed to decipher the responsible molecular and cellular mechanisms for regulation of the hypothalamic melanocortin neurons, which have a key role in the control of food intake and energy metabolism. Here is the latest research.

Hypothalamic Neoplasms

Hypothalamic tumors are located within the hypothalamus of the brain. The tumors may arise from abnormal growth of glial cells, known as gliomas or may be caused from the spread from surrounding structures, such as optic tumors. Here is the latest research on hypothalamic neoplasms.

Pain & Addiction

Chronic pain and addictive disorders present significant medical and public health problems; both are underdiagnosed and inadequately treated. The cooccurrence of pain and addiction adds complexity to the assessment and treatment of both disorders. Discover the latest reserch on pain and addiction here.

Sulfonamides

Sulfonamide is a functional group found as the base of several classes of drugs. Sulfonamides can act as synthetic antimicrobial agents, anti-diabetics, diuretics, anticonvulsants, etc. Here is the latest research.

Selective Ion Transport in Channels & Pumps

Ion channels and pumps are central to a number of cell functions, including membrane excitability and synaptic transmission. With sophisticated imaging, these channels and pumps have been characterized as selective for the ions, sodium, potassium chloride and calcium. Here is the latest research on selection ion transport in channels and pumps.

Phenylketonuria (PKU)

Phenylketonuria (PKU) is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by abnormalities in amino acid metabolism caused as a result of deficiency in phenylalanine hydroxylase, an enzyme that converts phenylalanine to tyrosine. Here is the latest research.

RPGRIP1L Gene & Neurons

RPGRIP1L is a ciliary gene that is ubiquitously expressed in human embryonic and fetal tissues. It functions in neurodevelopment, including the development of hypothalamic arcuate neurons. Defects in this gene are associated with Joubert syndrome (type 7) and Meckel syndrome (type 5). Here is the latest research on the role of this gene in neurons.

Phenylketonuria

Phenylketonuria (PKU) is an inborn error of metabolism that results from a deficiency of phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH). Discover the latest research on phenylketonuria here.
